Do you or your family members enjoy getting around town on foot, pedal or by other mobility means?
Richmond Valley Council is currently reviewing its Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP), and has engaged consultants GeoLINK to carry out the review.
The PAMP is a plan of current and future infrastructure needs for the movement of pedestrians and mobility devices such as bikes, wheelchairs, and scooters to support investment in safe and efficient pathway networks.
The PAMP looks at items such as:
- Footpath connections
- Path widths
- Pedestrian crossings and /or refuges
- Tactile and audible facilities
- Kerb ramps
- Fixtures such as lighting and signage.
Council’s original PAMP was developed in 2010, but it is now being reviewed and updated to ensure it is relevant and sets new goals for the future.
Download the maps which relate to your area below to get an idea of what already exists and what is proposed.
By having a current PAMP that reflects the views of the community, Council can then adopt the plan to:
- Support applications for grant funding
- Work to have planned footpath improvements incorporated into annual budgets.
- Coordinate investment in and delivery of safe, convenient and connected pedestrian routes
- Guide Council’s policies and actions
How can I be involved?
Council wants the plan to reflect the needs and aspirations of the community. We want to engage with the community and seek your input in three ways:
- Undertake the online survey by clicking on the link RVC PAMP Survey – December 2019 to February 2020
- Attend a community drop in session – March 2020
- Comment on the Draft PAMP – May 2020
